Screenshot of PyTivo

pyTivo is both an HMO and GoBack server. Similar to TiVo Desktop, pyTivo loads many standard video compression codecs and outputs mpeg2 (or in some cases, h.264) video to the TiVo. However, pyTivo is able to load many more file types than TiVo Desktop.
pyTivo is in no way affiliated with TiVo, Inc.
Output 4:3 or 16:9 and pad your video if needed.
Transfer compatible video files without transcoding.
Transfer TiVo recordings (.tivo) from computer to TiVo.
Display Metadata about your video.
Serve Music and Photos through the HMO protocol
Support for Windows, Linux, and Mac
NOTE: PyTiVo requires Python 2.5 or greater but less than 3.0 to work. At this time the package does not have the dependency included.

Virus Scan Results

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).

Chocolatey Pro provides runtime protection from possible malware.
